Finally, the rumors are true, CAF has been online for 15 years as of today. It is an incredible milestone and we're thankful for the support you've shown us over these years. I took a little time this morning and wrote a brief history of CAF as well as linked to the wayback machine so you can see what TheArtBoard used to look like before CAF came. We've not always been perfect, but we've changed this hobby in many positive ways the last 15 years and will continue to do so for the next 15!
